I have a CSV file that gives the datetime as a text cell 20150615160228000  and i need to convert it to date time in access querry.

Need to convert to 06/15/2015 16:02:28

Below is what i tried but not working.

CDate(Mid([ColumnX],5,2) & "/" & Right([ColumnX],2) & "/" & Left([ColumnX],4) & " " & Mid([ColumnX],9,2) & ":" & Mid([ColumnX],11,2) & ":" & Mid([ColumnX],13,2))
